Stacking the Shelves #69

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews in which we feature all the book goodness that we received, borrowed or purchased during the previous week. All links are to Goodreads.

Hello gorgeous people!  Thanks for joining me for a really exciting STS!  Why am I so hyped, you might ask? Well, you don't have to beg, I'll tell you. I had an awesome time at the American Library Association (ALA) Midwinter exhibit and I got a lot of books that were really unexpected (read all about it here).  See my awesome haul:

Purchased for Kindle

Draw Me In by Megan Squires - I saw this one in Goodreads and it had great reviews.

En un rincón del alma by Antonia J. Corrales - I decided to start reading books in Spanish again and this is my first try.
